The A9 from Merchiston Roundabout to Mungalhead Roundabout is closed due to flooding and is not safe for vehicles to pass through currently.

A pumping station has failed leading to water buildup and flooding on the road caused by surface water.

Pump maintenance technicians inspected the site yesterday however the sheer volume of water was such that they were unable to carry out the repairs.

Temporary pumping equipment will be installed this morning (Tuesday) to remove the water and allow technicians to properly inspect and fix the problem.

The road will stay closed until fully repaired and the pumping station is fully operational.
